week by talking foreign policy today and attacking president obama as simply not someone leading. >> i know the president hopes for a safer, freer, and more prosperous middle east allied with us. i share this hope. hope is not a strategy. >> we don't know if that line is going to work, but we know from new polls out today he's made significant headway since the debate. puts a lot of pressure on the vice presidential debate later this week. we'll talk about it at athe bottom of the hour. >> we will see you later on that very topic. also this evening, one battleground state, michigan, will vote on a state constitutional amendment to allowing collective bargaining, unlimited wage increases, and unchecked union power. michigan's governor rick snyder says how it will disrupt his state. they paid hundreds of thousands to a chicago consulting firm for training sessions where employees chant and i quote our forefathers were illegal immigrants. i think that whole story is an outrage. we begin with another monday in the red. the dow closed down 27 points. the naz was off 24. the s&p was down jus
with president obama among registered voters, 46% even. four weeks ago pew had obama up by nine among registered voters, so this has been a huge shift in the pew poll. the move in the pew poll towards romney is greater among likely voters. romney is surging ahead to 49%. four weeks ago obama led among likely voters by eight. now to the latest gallup tracking poll which covers the last seven days. gallup has president obama back in the lead at 50 to 45. what a difference from the other polyp that's exactly where the race stood before the debate. romney had surged in the tracking poll. the two candidates were actually tied in the three days immediately after the debate, but the president seems to have wiped out romney's gains in the gallup poll. joining me right now are howard fineman, editorial director of the "huffington post," and the honorable michael nutter, mayor of philadelphia and presidential surrogate in this tough campaign. gentlemen, thank you for joining us. always go to the elected official first. mr. mayor, what needs to be done right now to right this ship, to get obama back on a w
it. so the jobs numbers probably helped slow the obama fall but now we move into another week people will be talking about biden, and then a couple of more with romney and obama. >> bill: yeah, i was surprised and impressed, i guess that obama proved -- so he didn't have a good night, we all know that, but i thought he bounced back pretty quickly the next day. he has been having a lot of fun with the big bird line. and it showed a lot of resilience, i thought, and as you point out the job numbers came on friday which gave him another little boost, cutting the impact of any romney bounce. >> yeah he has an incredible amount of fire and energy when it is his back up against the wall. >> bill: yeah. >> it's almost like he puts himself in positions like that so that he can get excited about politics again. he obviously didn't want to be on that stage, wednesday night. you could just tell he was like, god, 90 minutes. i'm just going to stand here for 90 minutes and let this guy say stuff, and then he sees that the entire nation is mocking him, and then he get
nationally. right now, romney at 49%. obama at 45%. that's a significant shift from only a few weeks ago. same poll, likely voters at obama 51%. romney, 43%. that's a dramatic shift indeed. let's get the reaction, jim acosta is traveling with the republican presidential nominee. what are they saying, jim? >> reporter: wolf, i can tell you right now that mitt romney is standing behind me addressing an understandably small crowd of supporters here at newport news, virginia, it is raining buckets here. but that's not dampening the enthusiasm of the romney campaign. they feel very good about this poll that just came out from the pew research center, showing a four-point lead among likely voters for mitt romney over the president. that is a kind of poll that they have not seen in some time. so they're very happy about that. i got some instant response from a senior romney official who told me over an e-mail a few moments ago that they are encouraged by the enthusiasm that they're seeing from supporters who they call energized. we have been seeing that over the last several days at various cam
% for obama, a four-point spread. that's a 12-point spread in only, what, three weeks, shall we say? and clearly the major development was his strong performs at that debate. >> you know, wolf, it just shows you that voters are still really weighing the pluses and minuses of these two candidates. what i really need to see, though, to make any judgment about how this is going to really affect the election or how it has affected voters is i need to look in the battleground states, don't you think? you need to look at the battleground state of ohio. you need to look at wisconsin. you need to look at iowa. you need to look at virginia, florida, and see whether in fact the race has tightened, particularly in a state like ohio, wolf, where the president had a commanding lead by five or six points. let's see if in that state which the republican campaign has to win, i believe, if mitt romney's to become president, let's see if the poll numbers in that state of ohio which we're going to see as this week proceeds, let's see if those numbers have tightened there because that's going to be a k
's poor performance last week. also, this is a campaign where president obama is running as much against paul ryan's ideas as he is against mitt romney. that elevates ryan as well. >> it seems clear in choosing chris van holland they will go against the first ryan budget, the first medicare plan and also the ryan book. they will go after the budget cuts and troo to tag mitt romney with the severity, using the term relatively, of the ryan budget cuts. >> right. rom uh any down played the ryan road map. keep in mind the first ryan budget plan included privatizing social security, at least to a certain extent. that's something ryan then dropped in his subsequent budgets. it was there and he was one of the advocates of the plan to put it in the market. secondly the medicare issue. those entitlements, we'll ha from biden about thursday. a lot of democrats think he dropped the ball not pushing the issues against mitt romney. joe biden will read ryan's book and go after those entitlements. >> up next, as mitt romney focuses on foreign policy we'll get a reality check on the challenges abroad.

romney picked up momentum after last week's debate. obama is leading romney by just three points. romney's new strength has the obama campaign focusing on an attack plan. >> governor romney's central for $5c plan calls cut.lion tax- i don't have a $5 trillion tax cut. not telling the truth. >> romney does want to cut tax s that would reduce revenue years.rillion over 10 he said he would offset that by eliminating loopholes and deductions. has refused to say which ones, leaving him open to attack. mitt romney will deliver a today, and president policy.middle east tahman bradley, abc news. >> there was a hot debate on the weekend. commentator tv leaningreilly and left- host jon stewart faced off in a presidential debate on real issues at george washington .niversity demand was so high to see them that crashed the servers. be available for download. it's 43 degrees outside this monday morning. >> still ahead, it's a big day tomorrow for >> welcome back. i'm brian van de graaff. jacqui jeras is attending a conference. we should be in the low 70's this time of year. today we will be back in t
build his momentum from last week's debate, and president obama focusing on the american people who carried him forward despite mistakes made in 2008. one new poll was released in just the past hour. that is the new gallup daily tracking poll. it shows president obama and mitt romney now tied 47%. romney erasing the 5-point lead the president had before the debates. right now president obama is about to make modern history. the president is in california where he'll unveil a national monument in horne of cesar chavez who led the farm worker monument. it's the first national monument since the 1700s to horne the latino. the latino vote is heavily skewed towards the president, but the issue is enthusiasm. we know this visit today in california with this national monument is a big one for the president. as for governor romney, he took direct aim at president obama's handling of foreign policy during his speech at the military institute in virginia. it's the tenth foreign policy speech of romney's campaign. >> when we look at the middle east today, with iran closer than ever to nuclear
to an empty chair. the empty chair represented president obama. this week's cover of "the new yorker" picks up on the performance against mitt romney. why don't you since you work for "the new yorker" ryan, put that cover up again. >> this is barry blitz, one of -- i think one of the most -- a lot of people, one of my favorite cartoonists at the new yorker, famously in 2008 did a cover that was controversial of barack and michele obama in the oval office, remember this -- >> the terrorist misstep. happen to have a piece in that issue, overshaded doed the palestinian issue. but yeah, i think he captured what everyone's reaction to that debate was. >> not the 2% of republicans. >> the 70% of independents that thought romney won -- >> i love the jim lehrer detail on this. >> and your cantonist quoted as saying he never realized how difficult it would be to caricature furniture. he learned a new new lesson. >> interesting to see back to the poll numbers, we heard congressman ryan saying you get the -- no effect at all in that debate. i think -- >> we don't have the data yet. everyone is like -- >>
's interesting going forward into this week, i think it puts pressure on joe biden maybe exactly what the obama team didn't want, which is biden to feel the pressure of having to do well, which maybe is not a good place for biden to be. >> let me bring in white house reporter for "the new york times" peter baker. peter, thank you so much for joining us. >> thanks for having me. >> what's your anticipation here? i think it's obvious what happened with the president debate puts a lot of pressure on joe biden to perform exceptionally but it puts pressure for different reasons on congressman ryan. >> absolutely. look, there's a momentum at this point for governor romney coming out of last week's debate. it stole the opportunity for the obama campaign to kind of cement what had been building into a modest lead. so, you know, people don't tend to vote on who the vice president is, but it could change the rhythm of the campaign into the final few weeks. people are voting in a lot of states, and so this could have some real impact. >> i want to play what chuck todd said on "meet the press." chuck noted
it through the final weeks. >> reporter: president obama is raising more cash in california today. last night at a star studded los angeles fundraiser the president joked about his lackluster debate performance following songs from katy perry and stevie wonder. >> they perform flawlessly night after night. i can't always say the same. >> the president also accused his opponent, mitt romney, of backing away from campaign promise. >> obviously the governor knows his tax cut isn't too popular. so a few wicks before the election he is trying to pretend it doesn't exist. >> reporter: romney is in virginia today if a rally and what is being called a major foreign policy address. excerpts from the speech have already been released. romney witness a change of course in the middle east, including tougher sanctions on iran. and he will call on the u.s. to work with other nations to arm rebels in syria with weapons that can defeat the presence's army. -- the president's army. romney promised to be a strong international leader if elected. >> when i am president i will take the care it takes to rebuild o
you need to know starting with the president's plans for the week. >> president obama trying to bounce back from his debate performance hits the campaign trail this week making stops in california and the key battleground state of ohio. he is also expected to visit other swing states in the week and continue to prepare for the next presidential debate. >>> foreign policy will be in the spotlight tomorrow when mitt romney gives a speech at the virginia military institute. but the highlight of the week will be the vice presidential debate, joe biden and paul ryan face-off thursday in their only showdown in danville, kentucky. >>> while wall street gears up for earning season this week, a lot of big companies reporting, including alcoa, and jpmorgan chase, and will we see the third earnings declined in the third quarter. also ahead this week, the latest inflation data and a look at consumer sentiment. we will track that in the business news on cnn money. >>> and here is what we are watching this week. we are speaking with simmons. the daughter of kiss front man gene simmons. and also a fe
opportunity for obama in lass week's debate and an opportunity to see going forward is the promise of this election for obama was that he could use this to create a public dialogue about the issue of taxing the wealthy. it has been 22 years now since a single republican member of congress has voted for a tax increase of any kind, an income tax increase. if you're going to have any kind of a long-term deal, a long-term dif set deal, which is what everybody -- not everybody, but a lot of people on both sides who say this is what they want. if you're going to, it will include a tax component on the wealthy. >> if obama campaigns on that and wins and if democrats hold the senate and make gains in the house, that could ratchet up pressure on republicans to make some kind of deal. otherwise, you have the other thing. it's a myth that nothing is going to happen in the lame duck, because if they take democrat off and congress doesn't show up, a lot will happen. december 31st, the expiration of the bush tax cuts. they go away if nothing happens. something ahas to happen. >> i find it extrem
jokes aside, mitt romney gain soming ground after beating president obama in last week's debate. joining us to talk about the numbers our political editor paul steinhauser. that's pretty stuff. they know how to go there. are we talking about much of a balance here after the debate? >> well, one poll does indicate a small bounce. take a look at this, suzanne. this is from gallop. they do that daily tracking poll. it's a seven-day poll. look what they did. they split it up in two. on the left column, those are the three days prior to last week's debate in denver. you see according to gallop, among registered voters nationwide, the president a five-point advantage. with the sampling area, look at the right. those are october 4th through 6th. the three days after the debate, and gallop indicates it's all tied up there. yeah, i mean, this one poll does indicate that mitt romney did get a bounce. of course, we're going to see a lot more national polls, a lot more polls. most importantly in the battle ground states later today, tomorrow, and wednesday ask thursday. keep your eyes on those state
: nearly a week later, talk of the debate still dominated the sunday round table. obama senior advisor david axelrod defended the president on "face the nation". >> i think he was a little taken aback at the braz enness with which governor romney walked away from so many of the positions on which he's run. >> reporter: with just nine days until the two men debate again, this time in hempstead, new york, both campaigns are hoping solid performances will woo voters and donors alike. but while the romney campaign deals with heightened expectation, obama advisors are still not saying what, if anything, the president will do differently this time around. >> i think you can assume that he's reviewed the tape. and it will inform-- it will inform how he handles these subsequent debates. >> reporter: the president heads to san francisco tomorrow for more fund-raisers while governor romney is headed to virginia military institute for what his campaign is billing as a major foreign policy address, jeff. >> jeff: nancy cordes, thank you. we are four days away from the one and only vice presidentia

of an issue in the debate. mitt romney raised it last week and president obama blamed exxon mobil and they fired back at the president when he suggested changing the tax law to affect that company and it will come up in the v.p. debate and more down the stretch especially if prices are around $4 a gallon. >>eric: what do you think of the idea of relaxing the epa standards? the way i understand it, it is the california epa standard and keeping the national epa standard in place with the blending requirement. what do you think of that idea? >>guest: i'm not an energy expert but the politicians always have to be active in this situation you cannot just it is back and all the people in california, they are upset, they want something done. you can just say, we cannot do anything, it is up to the speculators and the markets. you have to try something. even though a last times when you do something, times it doesn't work. you have to be active whether you are a democrat or republican. you have to respond to the concerns. when you are spending this amount of money, $70 or $80 to fill up t

'donnell to review what obama and romney did in the first debate and what they should do better next time. plus this week's face-off between the vice presidential candidates. we will ask our sunday panel to handicap biden versus ryan. and we go "on the trail" all right now on "fox news sunday." and h hello again from fox news in washington. big changes in the presidential race this week. the romney campaign was reenergized by the governor's strong performance in the first debate. but president obama got a big boost with a new jobs report that showed a sharp drop in the unemployment rate. we are going to have our own debate today between democratic governor martin o'malley of maryland and republican senator kelly ayotte of new hampshire. welcome to "fox news sunday." >> thanks for having us. >> great to be with you, chris. >> chris: start with the jobs numbers that came out friday. unemployment rate dropped to the lowest since president obama took office. the government said 114,000 jobs answered. in a us whohold survey, 873,000 more americans reported having jobs. senator ayotte, isn't the econ
or it could be weeks. it is a different tlesh hold than what the obama administration has laid out when you look carefully at what the president said at the general assembly, the most recent remarks on iran's nuclear program, he said the united states will not allow iran to have a nuclear bomb. i am paraphrasing to a certain degree. the word capability was not there. you did hear it from the israeli prime minister and today you're hearing it once again from mitt romney. mitt romney has been vague. he has gone back and forth on the issue of capability and sometimes he says it and sometimes he doesn't. today he is very cat goral in saying in a romney administration iran would not be able to have that capability of building a nuclear bomb which is significantly different than the threshold laid out by the president. >> and let's talk about syria which has been somewhat of a thorn in the side of this current sitting american president, and mr. romney, governor romney's view of syria, there was something in these prepared remarks that we excerpted that stood out to me and i want to get your take
and attack barack obama on foreign policy and over the weeks and months that he's had the opportunity to frame rhetorically how he is going to approach this, will go down a little bit better. with that spain comment, it is something that didn't go down very well and as well with other things he said about other european countries and so we're going to have to see. i think what wolf said is very true. we have to listen to this speech and dissect it and see what tone and what words he uses in the next few minutes. >> i know i feel like we're jumping the gun. they sent us the excerpts in advance. we get this opportunity. if you would stand by for a second, thank you. our foreign affairs correspondent jill dougherty is standing by at the state department. clearly where you are all ears and eyes on this speech. this is so critical to the state department's work. it is one thing as i mentioned to be a candidate and be able to give a speech. it is quite another to be the president because your words are critical at that very moment and can set off any kind of array of problems. let me ask yo
. >> chris: governor romney and president obama still arguing late this week about who won their first debate and it is time now for the sunday group. brit hume fox news senior political analyst. mara liasson of national public radio. kimberly is strossel from the "wall street journal" and kirsten powers from the daily beast website. let's jump into the biggest news which s the jobs rate which showed a sharp drop. brit, how big a boost for the president. how big a setback for romney? >> improves the talking point that the president has. it is now below 8%. 8% has been thrown in his face now for some time. >> i don't think, however, people make up their are minds on the economy based on the unemployment number. i think they make up their minds about the economy based on what they see around them and feel in their own life and what the people they know are are related to are telling them in their experience in the job market and so on. given the fact that left intact in the job report is is the overall employment and underemployment rate up to 14.7% and unchanged a very bad number indeed. i thi
of weeks ago and when we did our september survey it was obama who was seen as the strong leader. for the first time in this campaign, romney's personal favorable rating has hit the 50% mark. it's been very, very low. he's brought it back up. he's made the race even among registerd voters. he has a slight lead in our poll among likely voters unlike the big margin that obama had a month ago. >> warner: stu, personal qualities was where president obama had had a huge edge. >> exactly. this debate turned things around. it made mitt romney more likable and the leadership is really strong. presidential elections are often about who is the stronger leader. but on other questions, there was significant change. honest and thoughtful. honest and truthful, rather. romney's numbers are up. willingness to work with leaders from the other party. i think there was a significant tonal change over the past week or so in the romney campaign. voters seemed to like it. they're just more open to him these days. >> warner: what we're seeing is sometimes president obama is still ahead in some of these
